How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Generously brush a 10-cup nonstick Bundt pan with butter, then dust with 2 tbsp. cocoa powder; tip out excess.

Step 2

In a heatproof bowl, combine chocolate chips and the remaining 1/2 cup cocoa powder. Pour 1/4 cup boiling water on top and stir until smooth. Set aside. In a second bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

Step 3

In a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed, beat granulated and brown sugars with mayonnaise until well combined, about 1 minute. Add eggs and egg yolk one at a time, beating just until incorporated. Beat in vanilla.

Step 4

With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture in three additions, alternating with chocolate mixture and beating just until blended; scrape bowl as needed.

Step 5

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake cake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool on a rack 15 minutes, then loosen from pan with a small spatula and turn out onto rack to cool completely.

Step 6

Set cake on a platter, sift powdered sugar on top, and serve with caramel sauce.
